This is a very special episode because I didn't do just one interview, I interviewed a whole room full of fabulous artists at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Who, you ask? The great artists of tomorrow - ages 3 to 10! Brace yourself for inspirational, hilarious, cuteness overload.
Today's artsy investigation takes a look into the WHY and HOW behind "ART and JOY", and oh so much more. If you've ever wanted to write a book but aren't sure how to get started, or you're curious about why I made the jump from adult art books to kids' books, all of the answers await!
If you don't go big, do you have to go home? We're investigating this question, but that's not all. We'll also explore how to "level up" by reaching out for a bit of help ... specifically PR help. Since these are two pretty big questions, I've brought in TWO creative experts to help me crack this case!
Today's investigation is a two-parter ... A) When every day of the week feels too busy for creativity, how do you prevent freezing up when there is a window of time? And B) How do you know if/when your hobby could become your everyday jobby? I'll be joined by a creative expert to help me solve this one!
I'm kicking off my new series of podcast episodes! Rolling up my sleeves to investigate (and solve) the questions and concerns sent in by artists from my community. I am ON THE CASE ... (PS I'll be joined by a mystery guest, who's an expert on beauty, to weigh in on today's investigation.)

I'm sharing a special preview of a podcast I've been enjoying, Talk Easy with Sam Fragoso, from Pushkin Industries. Talk Easy is a weekly interview podcast, where writer Sam Fragoso invites actors, writers, activists, and politicians to come to the table and speak from the heart in ways you probably haven't heard from them before. Driven by curiosity, he's had revealing conversations with everyone from George Saunders and Cate Blanchett to Ocean Vuong and Gloria Steinem. In this preview, Sam talks with performance artist Marina Abramović about her relationship to Ukraine, creating art out of hardship, the curiosity that propels her forward, and how her seminal piece, The Artist Is Present, lives on today. You can listen to Talk Easy at https://podcasts.pushkin.fm/talkeasyears.
